Public Image Ltd. coming to the Cuban Club in Tampa
Via Stuck in the '80s comes one of the most intriguing concert announcements we've heard in quite some time. Public Image Ltd., the British post-punk band fronted by former Sex Pistol John Lydon, are coming to the Cuban Club in Ybor City on Oct. 6.
You read that right. Johnny Rotten in the Cuban Club. Even if you don't dig Public Image Ltd., you have to admit, that's pretty cool.
The current incarnation of PiL also features guitarist Lu Edmonds (The Damned), drummer Bruce Smith (The Slits, The Pop Group) and bassist Scott Firth.
Ticket info is hard to come by at this point, but according to PiL's website, they'll be available via Ticketfly.com on Friday. Click here for more info.
And hey, is the Cuban Club becoming Tampa Bay's punk venue of choice? Pennywise, MxPx and Unwritten Law are playing there in October, too. Interesting.
